  • Patent number: 10735535
    Abstract: Embodiments for analyzing viewer engagement of online content by one or more processors are described. For each of a plurality of online channels having a piece of content posted thereon, viewer engagement associated with the piece of content and information associated with the posting of the piece of content on the respective online channel is received. The viewer engagement from each of the plurality of online channels is compared to the viewer engagement from the others of the plurality of the online channels. Based on the comparing of the viewer engagement and the information associated with the posting of the piece of content, a correlation between the viewer engagement from each of the plurality of online channels and the information associated with the posting of the piece of content on each of the plurality of online channels is determined. A signal representative of the determined correlation is generated.

  • Publication number: 20200202552
    Abstract: Embodiments for managing virtual reality (VR) sessions by one or more processors are described. A condition associated with a user experiencing a VR session is detected. A severity of the condition is determined. The determining of the severity of the condition is performed using a cognitive analysis of a detected situation associated with the condition that will affect the user, notwithstanding whether the detected situation is currently occurring within a vicinity of the user experiencing the VR session. If the severity is above a predetermined threshold, a signal representative thereof is generated.

  • Patent number: 10667765
    Abstract: A method, computer system, and a computer program product for automated smart watch assistance is provided. The present invention may include detecting a distress signal from a sensor of a distressed user device. The present invention may then include broadcasting a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) request based on detecting the distress signal from the sensor of the distressed user device. The present invention may then include receiving a response to the broadcasted CPR request based on an altered direction of travel of a responding user device. The present invention may finally include establishing a connection between the distressed user device and the responding user device.
